Re: Studio. 22 speaker upgrade battle

I put an Eminence Private Jack in one and it sounded great!

Re: Changing Speaker, are connections are soldered?Need help please

The wires are soldered right to the tabs on the speaker. If you don't mind spending a few bucks extra, you can buy a harness with tabs and a jack already on it.

Re: No volume on 5 watt mode

Keep in mind that you need a good strong tube there when you're in 5 watt mode. Try more than one.

Re: No volume on 5 watt mode

Did you swap the phase inverter/driver tube (V5?)? When mine went in an Express 5:50, the amp worked fine in the 50 watt setting, and very badly in the 5 watt setting.

Also, make sure that the tube you're swapping in is good- just because it's new doesn't mean it's good.

Re: Subway Rocket value

I see these for about $450 if you shop around a bit or are willing to wait.

Re: TA-15 vs 5:25+ Question

I haven't played an Express 5:25+ but I have a non + 5:25 and a TA-15 and they are very different amps. They're voiced completely differently. The TA-15 is a lot more dynamic and has great edge of break up sounds, though it has little headroom and is heaven with a Tele, it can be driven a little too...

Re: Celstion G10 Gold alnico in Express 5:25

I think it's better in every way, though I'm not a heavy riff kind of player.

Re: Express 5:25 1x10 pops and crackles

I'd start by cleaning the effects loop jacks.

Re: Reverb feedback

Unless you've got super sensitive hearing and are hearing things that most people can't, that's not normal. Make sure you're replacing the correct tube. I believe it's V5- the one that'd be in the position of the phase inverter in most amps. You could try replacing the other tubes in case one is mic...

Re: How old were you when you started playing guitar?

I started when I was 8 and played for about a year and a half. I picked it back up when I was 15.

Re: New Mesa amp: Fillmore 25!

Wow! I dig it! I was thinking the 50 was a little more amp than I wanted. My Express 5:25 and Studio .22 might be in trouble (along with my Soldano Astroverb, tweed Deluxe, Princeton Reverb and Budda Twinmaster)! I like ~20 watt amps!
